Twelve year old boy allegedly accused of six counts of sexual assault.
Police will allege the boy grabbed the 23-year-old woman’s arm and forced her to grab his penis on Saturday at Riverway, Queensland, Townsville Bulletin reported.
The woman reportedly then punched the boy in the face, before the boy later pushed a 13-year-old girl into some bushes and groped ‘various parts of her body’.
Townsville Child Protection Investigation Unit office-in-charge, detective Senior Sergeant Dave Miles, said the teenage girl was able to break free from the boy and ran away.
The 12-year-old boy was arrested that day at Willows Shopping Centre, where police believe he was about to commit further offences, reports Daily Mail.
The alleged assault spree on Saturday follows accusations he sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman in her front yard earlier this month.
He allegedly grabbed the woman on January 9 at Whitsunday Drive in Kirwan before running away.
Sen-Sgt Miles said the boy made no attempts to conceal his behaviour and said the sexual assaults were ‘opportunistic’.
‘We will also allege that it appears there was an escalation in offending,’ Sen-Sgt Miles said.
‘He was becoming more forceful in his activities.’
The boy will face Townsville Children’s Court on January 25 on six counts of sexual assault, two counts of common assault, and one count of trespass.
